ACKNOWLEDGMENT 

The acreage, production and value statistics In this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The 
county and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food 
and Resource Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of 
State Markets, Florida Departmentof Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents, Univer- 
sity of Florida's Cooperative Extension Service, were also very helpful In supplying area 
and county Information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of 
the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups Include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, 
Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Corn Ex- 
change, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and transportation firms 
provided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic data 
used In developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individ- 
uals and groups is appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Spires, Immokalee; J. B. Joiner, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
North Palm Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, 
production and price statistics In this bulletin. This report was assembled u nd e r the 
direction of Alan Dale Atkinson, Gerald H. Moody and Carl A. Ouzts of the Florida Crop 
and Livestock Reporting Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS— During the growing sea- 
son estimates were prepared for most crops on a calendar 
quarter to indicate available supplies for shorter periods 
of time than the entire crop year. The Fall, Winter, 
Spring quarterly estimates are combined into a crop year 
total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is shown 
by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been plantedfor harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same quarter, is counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested and planted again to the same crop is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the acreage production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable qual- 
ity but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors; or if harvested, was not 
sold or utilized for those reasons. Estimates of acreage 
and production lost because of economic reasons are dif- 
ficult to define andmeasure, and are notattempted unless 
such losses become significant. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alent price received on an f.o. b. shipping point basis and 
encompasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 
Included are packing charges, selling charges, precooling 
top ice, or other costs which contribute to the value of the 
product at shipping point. The value per unit for quantities 
sold to processors is the average value paid for usuable 



quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" basis. This 
value includes transportation and other normal costs in- 
cident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized becaused of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result 
in the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

RAIL TRUCK (Piggyback) shipments are included 
in the straight rail shipments shown for each crop, unless 
specified. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS represent the average num- 
ber of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL)— Loadings by stations are 
pro-rated by commodities, using tabulations of waybills 
in prior years. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
car lots on the basis or predetermined load factors. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The offical 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most common- 
ly used containers. If changes in container weights are 
necessary, all data pertaining to the production of the 
commodity in question is revised to maintain compara- 
bility between years . The table below gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per 
hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1975-76 VEGETABLE SUMMARY 



Value of Florida grown vegetables, melons, po- 
tatoes, and strawberries totaled a record $524.4 million 
for the 1975-76 season. This was an increase of $38. 1 
million over the previous season. Acreage harvested in- 
creased 7 percent over the previous year. Crops showing 
the greatest gains were snap beans, sweet corn, lettuce, 
green peppers , tomatoes , watermelons and potatoes . 
Crops increasing in value were celery, sweet corn, es- 
carole-endive, lettuce, green peppers, squash, tomatoes 
"other vegetables, " potatoes and strawberries. Crops 
with lower values than the previous year were snap beans, 
cabbage, cucumbers and eggplant. Most of the declines 
were due to lower season average prices. Potatoes which 
rose $17. 1 million, showed the greatest increase in value, 
followed by celery and tomatoes which increased $15. 1 
million and $13.9 million, respectively. "Other" miscel- 
laneous vegetables totaled $38. 7 million, an increase of 
$2. 3 million from a year ago. 



Average yields for celery , sweet corn, cucumbers, 
lettuce, and potatoes increased during the year while cab- 
bage, eggplant, escarole, green peppers, radishes, 
squash, tomatoes, watermelons and strawberry yields de- 
clined slightly. Improved varieties , cultural practices and 
weather conditions can affect crop yields considerably. 



Season average price of celer}', escarole, lettuce, 
green peppers , radishes, squash, tomatoes and potatoes 
were higher than a year earlier. Season average prices 
for snap beans , cabbage, sweet corn, cucumbers, egg- 
plant, watermelons and strawberries were below a year 
earlier. 



In August, land preparation, planting and trans- 
planting was quite active in most areas. Generally nor- 
mal weather prevailed over most of the farming areas 
during September u Temperatures moderated in October. 
Most areas had excessive rainfall. Temperatures were 
generally mild during November. Harvest gained momen- 
tum during October and November. 



Temperatures during December were variable. 
Light frost in west central and southwest areas caused 
minor damage. Another cold front moved into the south- 
ern farming areas during January. Light frost caused only 



minimal damage, mostly to young foliage Strong, gusty 
winds caused sand to blow with moderate damage to young 
plants in exposed fields. Cold temperatures slowed grow- 
th and delayed maturity. Irrigation was active during the 
month. Spray programs were stepped up to combat dis- 
ease. 



In early February, several cold fronts moved 
through the south Florida growing areas. Scattered frost 
occurred in many areas. There was not much additional 
damage from earlier frost. Plant growth was set back 
several weeks by the cool weather. Warming trends oc- 
curred after each cold front and plants began making prog- 
ress. Weather was mostly favorable the last half of Feb- 
ruary. Plants made excellent progress as growing con- 
ditions improved. 

In March, weather was generally favorable for 
crop growth and development. Warm days and mild nights 
prevailed. Locally heavy rainfall occurred in some sec- 
tions during the month. However, irrigation continued in 
most areas. 



Daytime temperatures were generally warm and 
nights mild during April. Rainfall in the vegetable farm- 
ing areas was variable. Irrigation continued quite active. 
Most crops made excellent p ro gr e s s during the month. 
Spray programs were active and disease was mostly under 
control. 



Hot days and warm nights prevailed during much 
of May. Scattered rainfall occurred over most of the 
vegetable farming areas. Rains interrupted harvest and 
caused some damage. Gusty winds and hail caused some 
damage to crops in the Pompano area. Disease became 
more prevalent and spray programs were stepped up. 

In June, moderate to heavy thundershowers occur- 
red in most farming areas. Temperatures were near nor- 
mal. Most vegetable crops declined seasonally and liar- 
vest was practically over by the end of the month. How- 
ever, watermelon harvest continued into July in the west. 
Also, sweet corn provided good supplies in June. Rains 
became a problem with harvest operations. 

Much of the weather data for this summary was 
supplied through the Federal-State Agricultural Weather 
Service, Ruskin, Florida.

SNAP BEANS 
1975-76 



Florida growers produced 4. 5 million bushels of 
bush and pole beans during the 1975-76 season. Acreage 
harvested during the season totaled 37,500 acres, up 6 
percent from the 35, 300 acres harvested during the pre- 
vious season. The average yield for the entire season was 
119 bushels per acre, as compared with 120 bushels per 
acre the previous year. The slightly lower yield was more 
than offset by the increase in harvested acres, and total 
production was 5 percent above the 4. 2 million bushels 
produced in 1974-75. 

The average f. o.b. price of $5. 74 per bushel was 
40 cents less than the previous year's record high. Total 
value, at nearly $25.6 million, was 2 percent below last 
year. The increased production partially offset the low- 
er unit price. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with 
the exception of the east central and southwest areas. The 
southeast continues to be the major producing area. Pole 
beans are produced primarily in Dade County, with small 
acreage grown in Gadsden County and the west central 
area. 



Earliest fall supplies of snapbeans originate from 
West Florida. Production increases throughout the fall 
season as the north and west central areas, the Everglades 
and the southeastern districts begin harvest. The south- 
east is the sole source of supply during the winter. The 
other areas resume production in the spring. 

Snap bean production extended from late Septem- 
ber into early June. The fall crop peaked in December, 
followed by a decline in marketings in January and Feb- 
ruary. Production increased sharply in March, and the 
spring crop peaked in April. Nearly 22 percent of the mar- 
ketings occurred in April, compared with 17 percent in 
April the year before. 

Variable weather influenced last year's bean crop. 
Heavy mid-September rains in the southeast washed some 
fields, necessitating moderate to heavy reseeding. Dur- 
ing the winter season, cold winds burned tender pin beans, 
reducing yields and delaying maturity somewhat. How- 
ever, slightly lower winter bush bean yields were par- 
tially offset by an acreage increase of high-yielding pole 
beans in Dade County. Weather during the spring season 
was mostly favorable, and yields were very good. 



CABBAGE 
1975-76 



Cabbage production in Florida totaled 8.3 million 
sacks and crates during the 1975-76 season. The gross 
value was $19. 3 million — down 26 percent from the record 
$26.1 million set a year earlier. The average f. o. b. 
price was $2.32 per sack or crate, down 59 cents from 
the previous season but 14 cents above the 1973-74 mar- 
keting period. 

Acreage planted during the season totaled 18, 200 
acres, up nearly 5 percent from a year ago. Acreage 
harvested totaled 17,200, 2 percent above the previous 
season. Abandonment was higher than usual because of 
low prices during the late winter and early spring months . 
Yields were lower than a year ago and averaged only 483 
crates or sacks per acre. Even though yields were down 
from the record 532 crates set the previous season, they 
were the second highest of record. Selective cutting dur- 
ing the periods of low prices kept yields lower than ex- 
pected. 

Cabbage was available for market from November 
through late June. Sales continued to be heaviest through 
the January-April period with the peak in March when 
3,022 carlot equivalents moved out-of-state. This ac- 



counted for 26 percent of the total marketings, the same 
as last year. 

The Hastings area, which includes Flagler, Put- 
nam and St. Johns counties, is the major producing area, 
accounting for 54 percent of the State's harvested acre- 
age. The north central area continued to rank second 
with 4, 400 acres harvested and over 2 million crates pro- 
duced. Good yields were obtained in all areas with the 
highest yields realized in the southern growing areas. 

Seedbeds were prepared and transplanting got un- 
derway in late August and September. Transplanting and 
direct seeding was active in most areas from early Octo- 
ber through January. By February direct seeding was 
about complete, but transplanting continued through March. 

First cuttings occurred the first week of Novem- 
ber. Harvest increased rapidly as most areas were cut- 
ting by mid-December. Supplies increased sharply in 
January when all areas were cutting and continued to rise 
until the March peak. Volume remained heavy through 
April but declined sharply in late May. Sales continued 
into June and the season was completed by the end of the 
month.

CARROTS 
1975-76 



Production of carrots in Florida made rapid gains 
during the 1970-71 season and continued to increase through 
the 1972-73 s e a s o n. Production in 1975-76 d e c 1 in ed 
slightly. There were 1,095 carlot equivalents of fresh 
carrots shipped out-of-state last season. Processed ship- 
ments amounted to 209 carlot equivalents during the 1975-76 
season, compared with 303 carlot equivalents a year 
earlier c 

The muck soils around Lake Apopka, near Zellwood, 
and the Everglades provide a good medium for growth. 



The mini or finger carrot harvest usually begins in Oct- 
ober and is complete by the end of May. Regular-sized 
carrots are harvested from November through June, The 
peak harvest period was December through May. 

The cold weather during January and February of 
1976 retarded growth and reduced the size and yields. 
Heavy rains during March caused some harvesting 
problems. 



CELERY 
1975-76 



Florida celery marketings of 6.7 million crates 
were harvested from 9,700 acres. During the 1975-76 
growing season, the average yield of 687 crates per acre 
compared with 655 crates for the previous year. 

Prices were improved over the 1974-75 season. 
Celery averaged $6. 14 f. o. b. per crate compared with 
$3. 73 in 1974-75. Prices averaged above a year earlier 
for each quarter. The crop was valued at $40. 9 million, 
an increase of 58 percent from the previous season. 

The Everglades, with 84 percent of the harvested 
acreage, was the foremost area of production throughout 
the season. The north central area, supplemented by light 
volume from the Sarasota area, accounted for the remain- 
ing 16 percent of acreage and provided continuing supplies 
throughout the season. 



early May. Growers in Sarasota planted mos tly from 
October to March. 

Light harvest began i n mid-November. Growing 
conditions were hot and humid in early fall. Conditions 
were generally good in the winter and spring. Quality 
and yields were very good during the winter period. 
Disease and leaf miners were mostly under control. 
Trading was slow in March and some growers were unable 
to keep up with production. Demand increased in April 
and growers kept on top of cutting. Approximately 9 per- 
cent of planted acreage was not harvested for various rea- 
sons — a near normal level. Growers passed some acre- 
age in order to maintain good quality. 

Celery production was mostly stable from Dec- 
ember to early June. Cutting declined seasonally in the 
last half of May and June. Harvest was completed in all 
areas by July 1. 



Plant bed preparation and seeding was underway 
in early June Transplanting became active in the Ever- 
glades and Zellwood in mid-August. Planting in the 
Everglades continued into early April, while some acreage 
in the north central district were still being seeded in 



Celery is subject to a federal marketing order 
administered by the Florida Celery Committee. Their 
field supervisors provide acreage and production data. In 
cooperation with the committee, these data are assembled 
into weekly and monthly reports. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1975-76 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily at Zellwood and 
in the muckland of the Everglades. Harvest was underway 
bj mid-November Volume was light through November 
but increased to good volume in December and January. 
Production peaked in April. Good supplies were available 
from December through April. During April, Zellwood was 



providing good volume while production in the Everglades 
was declining seasonally. The season was over in early 
May. 

Yields and quality held up well during most of the 
season. The crop did not suffer significantly from adverse 
weather or disease.

SWEET CORN 
1975-76 



Florida, the nation's leading sweet corn producer, 
marketed 13.2 million crates during the 1975-76 season. 
Production increased 10 percent from the previous year. 
Growers harvested 57,400 acres, up 9 percent from the 
52,700 acres harvested during the 1974-75 season and 15 
percent above the 1973-74 acreage harvested. Yields av- 
eraged 231 crates per acre statewide compared with 227 
crates a year earlier. Yields have averaged above 200 
crates per acre for every year since the record 244 crate 
average in the 1972-73 crop year. 

The season average f.o.b. price of $3. 64 per crate 
was 13 cents below the average for the previous year. 
The total value of the crop was $48.2 million, up $3.1 
million from the $45.1 million received for the 1974-75 
crop. The value of sweet corn ranked second in the state 
in vegetable crops and was exceeded only by the value of 
tomatoes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in the 
Everglades in mid- August. Seeding on the East Coast got 
underway in early October and increased rapidly as the 
month progressed. Excessive moisture slowed plantings 
in Dade County in early October but plantings were back 
to normal by mid-month. First harvest began in the Ev- 



erglades in the week ended September 22nd and reached a 
fall peak in November. The declining harvest in the Ev- 
erglades during December was partially offset by the low- 
er east coast and Dade County. 

The Everglades spring crop was underway by ear- 
ly April. The Everglades became the main source of sup- 
ply in late April as the east coast and Dade County phased 
out. The transition of harvest from the Everglades to 
Zellwood occurred in mid-May. Zellwood increased to 
full supply by late May. Lake County provided a good 
volume in June. The season was over in early July. 

Small acreage provided supplemental supplies at 
Zellwood and the west central area during the early fall, 
and at Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during the growing season was generally 
favorable. Rain and wind caused some minor problems 
to young corn during the early fall growing season. Cold 
weather in late January slowed growth and damaged tas- 
sels and silk in the lower east coast and Dade County. 
Damage was generally light. Heavy rains caused some 
problems in the Everglades during April. The season 
was mostly favorable in the Zellwood area. 



CUCUMBERS 
1975-76 



Florida production of fresh market cucumbers 
during the 1975-76 crop year totaled 4. 3 million bushels, 
up 8 percent from the amount produced in 1974-75. The 
16,000 acres planted continued the upward trend started 
a year ago. Acres harvested totaled 15,400 compared 
with 14,600 harvested a year earlier. Average yield per 
acre — 282 bushels — was up 6 bushels from the previous 
year. Total production was valued at $15.8 million com- 
pared with $18.4 million for the previous year. The f.o.b. 
price for 1975-76 averaged $3.64 per bushel, down from 
$4.57 per bushel received for the previous year's crop. 
Average prices received for the important spring crop 
were considerably below average. 

Supplies in 1975-76 were generally available from 
September through June, with light marketings in Janu- 
ary through March. Much of the recorded shipments mov- 



ing out-of-state January through March are from off- 
shore and truck imports resold in mixed loads. 

The production of cucumbers is well distributed 
across the state. The southwest area, with 49 percent of 
the planted acreage during 1976-77, is the largest area. 
The west central area accounted for 21 percent of the 
planted acres in the state. The areas in the west, north, 
north central and southeast provided the remaining crop. 

Heavy rains in many areas during late September 
washed seed beds and leached fertilizer. Weather was 
mostly favorable during the late fall and winter. How- 
ever, several cold fronts moved into the state and fol- 
iage suffered light damage from frost and cold winds. 
Some replanting was necessary in hardest hit areas. Con- 
ditions for the spring crop were good. Excellent yields 
were obtained. Size, quality and color were good. 



5 



EGGPLANT 
1975-76 



Plantings of 2,400 acres were 9 percent above 
the 1974-75 season. The acreage planted was the high- 
est since the 1965-66 season when 2,400 acx-es were al- 
so planted. Yields averaged 688 bushels per acre, 4 
bushels below the record high yield of 692 bushels pro- 
duced a year earlier. Weather was generally favorable 
during much of the growing season. However, on sev- 
eral occasions, youngfruit was damaged by wind and sand 
which caused scarring. This damaged fruit resulted in 
reduced packout. Some light foliage burn occurred from 
frost. Damage was mostly minor. In June heavy rains 
caused flooding in some low areas. 

Production of eggplant increased to 1.6 million 
bushels, a record high level. Total value declined to 
$4.8 million compared with $5. 5 million a year earlier. 
The decline was due to the lower season average price 
of $3.06 per bushel compared with $3.71 a year ago. 
The fall and winter crops averaged much lower in price 
than ayear earlier, while the spring crop averaged higher. 

The distribution of marketings was generally nor- 
mal. Harvest began in October, reached a fall peak in 



November, and declined seasonally through February. 
Harvest again increased and reached a spri ng peak in Ap- 
ril. Supplies were generally light in February and March. 
Harvest was virtually completed by early July. The 
southeast area around Pompano continued to dominate 
with 67 percent of the harvested acreage. The northern 
and central areas combined contributed 24 percent of ac- 
reage harvested with the remaining small acreage in the 
southwest. 



Production was continuous through the entire crop 
year in the southeast and southwest, while the crops in 
western, northern and central areas were for fall and 
spring harvest only. Those areas receive too much freez- 
ing weather to grow eggplant during the winter months. 

First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern growing areas in early October. Harvest fol- 
lowed the usual pattern and progressed southward in the 
fall, continued through the winter in southern areas and 
then moved back northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1975-76 



The production of escarole and endive during the 
1975-76 season totaled 3.1 million crates. This com- 
pares with3.3 million crates produced the previous year. 
The 5,800 acres harvested was up 100 acres from the 
previous season. Yield per acre averaged 532 crates 
compared with the record high 584 crates the previous 
year. Prices during the season averaged $3. 19 per crate, 
compared with $2.61 a year earlier. The total value of 
sales, at $9. 9 million, was 13 percent above the previous 
year and a new record high. 

The Everglades, which had 72 percent of the har- 
vested acreage in the 1975-76 season, began seeding in 
early September. Weekly planting schedules continued 
through most of March. Light harvest began in late Oc- 
tober and supplies were continuous through May. The 
mucklands around 7ellwood provided good volume in the 



late spring months. Smaller acreage grown on Lake Pla- 
cid and Sarasota mucklands also furnished supplemental 
supplies during much of the season. 

Sales started relatively slow in November but in- 
creased considerably to a good volume by December. 
Marketings reached peak levels in March. Good volume 
continued through April. Harvest declined seasonally 
in May and was over by June 1. 

Growing conditions were generally favorable dur- 
ing most of the season. Excessive rains in October caused 
some damage and interrupted planting and harvest oper- 
ations. Frost and wind burn in January and February- 
caused light damage. Quality of escarole and endive was 
mostly good throughout the season.

LETTUCE 
1975-76 



Florida lettuce growers produced a record 1.5 
million hundredweight during the 1975-76 season. This 
production topped the previous record set during the 
1974-75 season by 14 percent. A 13 percent gain in har- 
vested acres accounted for most of the increase since 
yield per acre was up only 2 percent. Average yield at 
184 cwt. per acre did, however, represent a record high. 
The season average f. o. b. price of $10. 35 per cwt. was 
$1.40 above the previous season. Prices during the en- 
tire season were well above a year earlier. 

Acreage, production, and value statistics of lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various types into a single es- 
timate. These types include the predominant iceberg and 
romaine as well as Boston, bibb, and leaf. The Ever- 
glades muckland accounted for 79 percent of the planted 
acreage and was the source of a continuous supply which 
began in late October and ended in early June,, Z ell wood 
is the other major producing area, with Sarasota and the 
Lake Placid mucklands contributing light supplies during 
much of the season,, 

Seeding was underway by early September. A 11 
areas were actively planting by mid-month with the Ever- 



glades and Sarasota areas scheduling plantings through 
March in order to produce a continuous supply of the 
various types from October through May. The central 
area normally discontinues production on the mucklands 
from December through April. However, the warmer sand 
lands around Zellwood provide light supplies during the 
winter period. 



Harvest was underway by late October with light 
volume through most of November. Supplies of all types 
increased in December with growers cutting in all areas. 
Volume reached peak levels during the period February 
through April. The Everglades provided the bulk of the 
volume by early January, but sizeable acreage in the cen- 
tral areas contributed to the spring supply. Production 
dropped sharply in May and was virtually over by June 1. 



Weather was generally favorable during most of 
the growing season. Heavy mid-September rains caused 
some minor damage to low fields. 



PEPPERS 
1975-76 



During the 1975-76 season, 7.2 million bushels of 
peppers were marketed from 15,900 acres. The average 
yield of 454 bushels per acre was 11 percent below the re- 
cord high 510 bushels the previous year. Production was 
5 percent below the previous year. 

While production was down, the f. o.b. season 
average price was up from $4.96 to $5. 45 per bushel. 
This higher per unit price resulted in record marketing 
proceeds. The total value of $39.3 million was 4 percent 
above the previous high established during the 1974-75 sea- 
son. Prices were generally favorable throughout the sea- 
son, but were especially good during the month of March. 
Marketings were light in October, increased to a high level 
by January and peaked in May. The season was virtually 
over by the end of June. The 8 percent increase in planted 
acreage statewide was the result of a rather substantial 



gain of 15 percent in the heavy producing southwest area. 
Planted acreage decreased in the southeast. The south- 
west accounted for 58 percent of the state's total pepper 
acreage. The southeast had 15 percent; the north central 
area, 13 percent; the north, 9 percent; and the west cen- 
tral area, 5 percent. 

Heavy rains during mid-September caused above 
normal droppage of bloom and fruit in the southern areas, 
reducing fall yields somewhat. Damage was heaviest in 
fields without plastic. The crop condition improved when 
the showers dissipated. Cold damage was mostly moderate 
during the winter season. Cool J a n u a r y temperatures 
caused above normal droppage of bloom and fruit, reducing 
winter yields. Mosaic was a problem in some fields. 
Spring weather conditions were generally favorable, and 
yields improved.

POTATOES 
1975-76 



The production of potatoes in 1976, including both 
the winter and spring seasons, totaled nearly 6.3 million 
hundredweight, up 18 percent from 1975. A total of 
31,900 acres was planted, compared with 27,600 acres 
planted last season. The 31,000 acres harvested were 
3,500 more than ayear ago. Total sales were $41. 9 mil- 
lion, up 69 percent from the $24. 8 million realized in 
1975. The sharp increase in acreage combined with a 
S2.02 increase per cwt. in the average price received 
was responsible for the sharp gain in total value. 

The average 3'ield in 1976 was a record 203 cwt. 
per acre. The winter crop averaged 200 cwt. , 5 cwt. 
above the previous season. The spring crop grown in the 
Hastings area averaged 210 cwt. , a new record for this 
area. Spring potatoes grown in other areas did not do as 
well and averaged only 160 cwt. per acre, down 14 per- 
cent from last season. 

The average price of S6. 66 per cwt. was well 
above ayear earlier but $1.06 less than the record $7. 72 
per cwt. received in 1974„ 



The winter crop in South Florida continues to be 
dominated by the "red-skinned" varieties used primarily 
for table stocks The spring crop grown in the Hastings 
area was mostly the "white-skinned" varieties used in 
making chips. 

Weather conditions during the winter and spring 
seasons were generally good. There was no cold damage 
but heavy rains in some areas contributed to the low yields 
in the "other spring" crop. 



The winter potato crop was off to a good start in 
early January but harvest slowed in early spring because 
of market conditions. Harvest extended into early May, 
longer than usual. The spring crop in the Hastings area 
followed a near normal seasonal pattern. Harvest got 
underway in early April and progressed rapidly to the May 
peak. Digging continued through June and was completed 
in July, a little later than usual. 



RADISHES 
1975-76 



In 1975-76, radish plantings amounted to 29,200 
acres compared with 31,000 the previous season. Acres 
harvested totaled 25, 700 compared with 27, 400 in 1974-75. 
Yields averaged 293 cartons per acre compared with 300 
the previous year. The crop w : as valued at $15. 8 million 
compared with $16. 8 million a year earlier. The average 
f. o. b. price was $2. 10 per carton, up 6 cents from the 
previous year. 

A good supply of both red and white radishes were 



available from Zellwood, Lake Placid and the Everglades 
from October through May. Thefall peak harvest 
occurred in December while April was the peakspring 
harvest. The season ended with a light volume in early 
June. Seeding of the 1975-76 crop w 7 as underway in the 
Everglades and north central areas in early September . 
A few loads were pulled in early October. Harvest was 
in full swing in early November. Supplemental supplies 
were available from Lake Placid and Sarasota during the 
year. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1975-76 



Spinach statistics are not published separately for 
Florida since the 1973 season to date in order to avoid dis- 
closing individual operations. However, data for these sea- 
sons have been included in "other vegetables" in the overall 



summary table. Shipment data are shown on page 65. 
Favorable weather prevailed during most of the growing 
season. Most of the crop is grown in the north central 
and north areas.

SQUASH 
1975-76 



Florida's production of squash during the 1975-76 
season, at 1. 8 million bushels, was virtually unchanged 
from the previous season's record. Harvested acreage 
totaling 11,400 acres, an increase of 2 percent, offset a 
slightly lower yield. The average yield at 154 bushels 
per acre was down 6 bushels from the previous year. 

The average f. o.b. price at $6. 53 per bushel was 
the highest of record and 39 cents above the previous high 
of last season. This price, combined with the near record 
production resulted in a new high in value of sales. Total 
f. o. b. cash receipts amounted to over $11.5 million. 
Prices were generally favorable November through March, 
before tapering in the spring. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini squash. 
Dade County with 30 percent of the state's harvested acre- 
age in 1975-76 produces yellow crookneck, almost ex- 
clusively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a major 
producing area, is also an important market for squash 
grown in other areas of the state. This is especially true 



when local supplies reach low levels during the winter 
months. The southwest produces a continuous supply of 
most types. Central, north, and west Florida provide a 
good volume of most types during the fall and spring sea- 
sons. 



Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida that 
is shipped every month of the year, although shipments 
during the summer are usually light and confined mostly to 
local markets. The 1975-76 season got off to a slow start 
as heavy mid-September rains caused some acreage loss 
and reduced yields for the fall season. Marketings in- 
creased to the fall peak in December, before showing a 
seasonal dip during the winter months. Cold winds and 
frost in January caused light to moderate damage to the 
winter crop, but warmer weather in February and March 
was beneficial, and overall yields for the winter quarter 
were good. Weather was generally favorable during the 
spring quarter , and production was heavy. Peak market- 
ings for the 1975-76 season occurred in April, 



STRAWBERRIES 
1975-76 



Florida strawberry growers produced 2. million 
flats of berries during the 1975-76 season, up 6 per 
cent from the previous year. Harvested acreage totaling 
1,400 acres, increased 17 percent, more than offsetting 
a decrease in yield. The average f. o.b return per flat 
was $4.33, unchanged from the previous season's aver- 
age. The total value of the crop was a record $8. 9 mil- 
lion, exceeding by 6 percent the previous record estab- 
lished a year earlier. 

Laying plastic and other field preparations were 
in full swing by mid-October in the Hillsborough and Dade 
County producing areas, with transplanting beginning in 
Dade. Transplanting was underway in all producing areas 



by the end of October and was virtually complete by the 
end of November. 

Light harvest was underway by late December in 
Dade County and by mid -January in the Hillsborough area. 
Supplies increased to peak volume in March. March ship- 
ments were 82 percent above the previous year. Most of 
the commercial harvest was completed by early May, and 
growers opened fields to the public for U-pic operations. 
Weather was generally favorable during the season, with 
only minor cold damage in January. Quality and size were 
generally good, although yields were somewhat below the 
previous year. Warmer weather in February and March 
resulted in heavy production during the peak season.

TOMATOES 
1975-76 



The total value of the Florida tomato crop for fresh 
and processing utilization continued upward last season. 
The $162. 6 million was 9 percent above theprevious sea- 
son's record value. The factors contributing to the rec- 
ord value were a greater acreage and a slight increase 
in per unit value, which more than offset a reduction in 
average yield. 

Total production of 30.8 million 30-pound carton 
equivalents was 8 percent above the previous season. The 
fresh market channel utilized 95 percent of the production, 
leaving 5 percent for processing. The Palmetto-Ruskin 
area accounted for 40.8 percent of the production; Dade 
County, 24.7 percent; the southwest, 20.1 percent and 
the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 13.6 percent. The re- 
mainder of the production was in the west, north, and 
north central areas. 

The state average yield, at 765 (30-pound) car- 
tons per acre, was down 90 cartons from the previous 
season. This decrease was primarily the result of a low- 
er winter yield, which was due in part to losing the "hole 
in the donut" producing area in Dade County. This was 
high-yielding acreage, and its loss forced growers to 
shift to lower-yielding rockland. Dade County continues 
to supply the bulk of winter tomatoes. Fall shipments 



peaked in December, which accounted for 15.9 percent 
of the seasonal fresh market sales. Spring production 
reached a record high in May, which amounted to 23.6 
percent of the seasonal total. Tomatoes were harvested 
continuously from late October to mid-June. 

The Palmetto-Ruskin area continued to be the ac- 
reage leader, with 13,420 acres harvested. Dade County 
ranked second, harvesting 11,860 acres. The southwest 
harvested 7, 170 acres, and the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 
5, 330 acres. A small acreage was harvested in the north, 
north central, and west areas. 

Seeding and transplanting were underway in all 
areas in August. Hot, wet weather prevailed during Sep- 
tember. Heavy rainfall occurred at mid-month, but dam- 
age was minimal. Mostly seasonal weather prevailed 
throughout the remainder of thefaU season. Only minor 
cold damage occurred to the crop during the winter 
months. Disease problems reduced yields in some fields. 
Weather conditions were generally favorable for the spring 
season, although heavy rainfall in late May and early 
June hastened the completion of harvest in the Palmetto- 
Ruskin area. Some growers were unable to pick as many 
times as normal because of the frequent rains. 



WATERMELONS 
1975-76 



Plantings of watermelons in Florida during 1976 
totaled 65, 000 acres, 3S percent more than 1975 and the 
largest acreage since 1961. Of this total, 55, 000 acres 
wereharvested, up 26 percent from the year before. Dur- 
ing the 1976 season growers had the largest production of 
melons since 1966. The crop of 9.9 million hundred- 
weight, was up 23 percent from the previous year. The 
average yield per acre for the season was 180 cwt. , off 
5 cwt. from last year. 

The value of the crop totaled $25.8 million, sec- 
ond only to the record value of $35.2 million set during 
the 1975 season. The average price received by growers 
was slightly over 2.6 cents per pound, 1.8 cents less than 
the record price of 4.4 cents received in 1975. The low 
price was a major factor in the heavy abandonment of ac- 
reage during the 1976 season. 

The watermelon season usually begins in the Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee area in late March or early April, de- 
pending on weather conditions. The season progresses 
into Central Florida during May while northern growing 
areas provide the heavy June volume. Harvest begins in 
June in the western or Panhandle area of the state and 
continues well into July. 

Seeding was underway in the Immokalee area in 
mid-December. Land preparation was active in other 
parts of the southern and central areas for planting dur- 
ing late December and January. There was some dam- 



age to plants from cold weather in January and February, 
which delayed harvest until mid- April. By early May, 
melons were moving in good volume. Planting was com- 
plete in the central areas by the end of February. Cold 
weather caused some replanting. The crop progressed 
very slowly early in the season and harvest did not be- 
gin until late April. Harvest was in full swing by mid- 
May. 

Planting was active in the north and west by mid- 
March. Dry weather in the northern areas slowed seed 
germination. The early plantings had poor stands and 
spot reseeding was necessary. In the Panhandle, thei'e 
was some frost damage to early plantings in late March, 
requiring replanting of many fields. 

Harvest got underway in the north in late May. 
Volume increased rapidly and reached a peak by mid- 
June. Size and quality of melons were very good but the 
price was low because of the heavy production in the state. 
Transportation was also a problem at this time due to the 
heavy demand for trucks. 

In the west, the first melons were harvested the 
last half of June. Sales continued heavy into July with 
good volume moving from both the west and north. By the 
middle of July, harvest was completed in North Florida 
but shipments continued from the western growing areas 
through the last half of July. The volume declined sharp- 
ly at the end of the month as the season finished.

OTHER CROPS 
1975-76 



Cantaloups are grown primarily in the southwest 
and north central areas of Florida. Much of the produc- 
tion sold goes through local markets or in bushel con- 
tainers. Most of the crop is harvested in May and June. 
Availability of cantaloups begins in the southwest area and 
moves northward as the season progresses. 

Researchers are working to develop several new 
varieties that will be adapted to Florida's soil and weath- 
er. There appears to be some promise along this line. 
See page 57 for shipments. 

Cauliflower is available from mid-January into 
April. Supplies are grown primarily in the Ruskin and 
Zellwood areas. Light supplies are grown in the north. 

Sub-tropical vegetables have expanded consider- 
ably in Florida in recent years. Commercial production 
began in the early 60's. Sub-tropical vegetable is a col- 
loquial expression applied to certain vegetables eaten 
primarily by those of Latin American and Caribbean ori- 
gin. The most common name for each is listed first with 
the scientific name second. Other common terms for the 
vegetables are rated third. The crops consist primarily 
of boniatos-ipomea batatos (sweet potato); calabaza-cu- 
curbita (pumpkin); malanga-xanthosoma sagitaefolium 
(dasheen, yautias); and yuca-monihot esculenta (sweet 
cassava). Dade County produces the bulk of the sub- 
tropical vegetables. Miami is an important point of con- 
sumption for the Florida production. Also, a consider- 
able amount is shipped to Tampa, New York City and 
Philadelphia. 

Collard , turnip , and mustard greens are grown 
for both fresh and processing markets. Most of these 
commodities are grown primarily in the Everglades and 



north central areas. Good volume is available from late 
October through May, with the peak period being January 
through March. Greens for local markets are also grown 
adjacent to most of the large population centers of Flor- 
ida. 

Okra is grown in many areas of the state during 
the warm seasons of the year. However, Dade County 
produces okra during most of the year for local use as 
well as shipment to other markets. Good volume occurs 
March through June with April and May being the peak 
period. Generally good supplies are also available in Oc- 
tober and November. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central area. Supplies are marketed primarily at local 
markets. Light supplies of dry onions are also available. 

Parsley is available in both the curly and plain 
varieties. The bulk of the commercial supplies that are 
shipped out-of-state are produced in the Everglades and 
Zellwood areas. Light volume goes for local use and is 
available from the Sarasota and Lake Placid areas. 

Southern peas are grown principally in the north- 
west, west central and Everglades areas of Florida. Dade 
County also produces good volume. Light supplies are 
available from September through December with heaviest 
movement during April through June. A high percentage 
of this crop moves to processors or through local mar- 
kets. 

Watercress is available year round. The major 
source of supply is Oviedo. Virtually all of the produc- 
tion is shipped to northeastern markets in the United 
States.
